Someone’s been drinking the tea: Senate Minority Leader John Boehner has really upped the hysteria in an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “They’re snuffing out the America that I grew up in,” Boehner said. "Right now, we’ve got more Americans engaged in their government than at any time in our history. There’s a political rebellion brewing, and I don’t think we’ve seen anything like it since 1776." He also says that Congress's financial-reform bill is like “killing an ant with a nuclear weapon.”
Correction: This post originally stated that Boehner said the health-care bill is like "killing an ant with a nuclear weapon"; he was actually talking about the financial-reform bill.
